Hi! Im trying to change the hydrogen ground state wave funcion from position to momentum space, so i solved the integral

Ψ(p)=(2πħ)^(-3/2)

and got 4πħ(2πħ)^(-3/2) p^(-1) (πa^3)^(-1/2) Im [(ip/ħ-1/a)^(-2)], which according to the professor's solution is ok, but then i dont know wich is the imaginary part that i need to pick. p is the momentum, i is the imaginary unit, a is Bohr radius, r is the radial coordinate, and Im means imaginary part of what is in the brackets.

So basically mi question is: How do i separate the imaginary part from the real part in this expression?:

The professor said that the final result is Ψ(p)=(8πħ^4)/[(2πħ)^(-3/2) a^2 (4πa)^(1/2) (p^2+ħ^2/a^2)^2], but i have no clue of how he did that final step. I guess it shouldnt be very difficoult but i have been long trying to figure out how to do it and for some reason i dont get it. It would be very nice if some of you could help me. Thanks!
